Bolts' Johnson: Three Points, Including Two Goals

News: Tyler Johnson scored twice, including the winner in overtime, and added an assist in a 3-2 win over the Red Wings on Thursday night. He's now tied for second in postseason goals (four) and tied for third in points (five).
Analysis: So much for a slowdown -- this diminutive forward is red hot. He'll get Conn Smythe consideration if the Bolts make it through the East. Tyler Johnson's just that good.

Bolts' Johnson Scores Twice

Johnson Looks Set To Go For Bolts

News: Tyler Johnson, who's missed the last three games with an upper-body injury, is on the ice as expected for Saturday's pregame warmups, Erik Erlandsson of The Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: The top-20 scorer will return to his spot on the Bolts' second line, so feel free to activate him right away.

Bolts' Johnson Expected Back Saturday

News: Tyler Johnson (upper body) took part in Saturday's morning skate and is expected to play later in the evening against the Panthers, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Coach Jon Cooper suggested earlier in the week that Tyler Johnson was questionable at best to suit up Saturday, but it sounds like the center made significant progress over the last couple of days to perhaps talk his way into the lineup. In addition to skating Saturday, Johnson able to get in a practice Friday without incident. He'll meet with the training and coaching staffs later in the afternoon for an additional evaluation, but that looks to be just be a formality at this point. Fantasy players should tentatively count on having Johnson available Saturday.

Bolts' Johnson Skates Friday

News: Tyler Johnson (upper body) skated during an optional practice Friday, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Tyler Johnson is still expected to miss Saturday's game against the Panthers, but his presence on the ice Friday offers encouragement that he'll be able to play again next week. He'll likely try to skate a few more times before making a possible return to the lineup next Thursday against the Devils.

Bolts' Johnson Likely Out Next Two Games

News: Coach Jon Cooper said Tyler Johnson has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Senators, and is unlikely to play Saturday against the Panthers, too, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: After Tyler Johnson missed the Bolts' previous two games, there was some optimism the center might be able to play Thursday after he was on the ice in full gear during the team's morning skate. Johnson was able to take part in line rushes and participated in penalty-kill drills, but the team determined that he needed more practice time to demonstrate that he's fully healthy. With Cooper skeptical of Johnson's chances of playing Saturday, the 26-year-old will aim to be ready for the Bolts' final two regular-season games next week.

Bolts' Johnson Out A Second Straight Game

News: Coach Jon Cooper said Tyler Johnson (upper body) would miss Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Though Tyler Johnson will sit for a second straight contest, Cooper suggested the center could be available for the final two games of the Bolts' road trip, which will take the team to Ottawa on Thursday for its next match. Johnson should continue to be viewed as day-to-day, but as soon as his return is formally announced, be sure to plug him back into your lineup immediately.

Bolts' Johnson Beginning To Slump

News: Tyler Johnson provided an assist in Sunday's win over the Bruins, giving him his first point in five games.
Analysis: It marked the longest scoring drought of the season for Tyler Johnson, who remains on track to reach the 70-point mark despite his swoon in March. While Johnson has already surpassed even the most optimistic of preseason projections, fantasy owners who have reaped the benefits all season may have to think long and hard about sitting the center during the fantasy playoffs. During his last five games, he's only put 11 shots on net, while seeing a slight reduction in minutes from his season average of 17:18 TOI.

Bolts' Johnson Nets Winner, Streak at Seven Games

News: Tyler Johnson scored the game's only goal in overtime to lift the Lightning over the Canadiens on Tuesday night.
Analysis: He grabbed his own rebound and put it in off a defender's skate. The point extended his scoring streak to seven games and nine points, including three goals. Tyler Johnson's longest scoreless streak this season is just three games, so his consistency has been remarkable. And at this point, he's leading the team in scoring and on track for about 80 points. Not bad for an undrafted sophomore, eh?

Point Streak Hits Six For Bolts' Johnson

News: Tyler Johnson extended his point streak to six games with an assist in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Stars.
Analysis: Tyler Johnson has been rolling all season, so scoring streaks like that are commonplace these days. His shot attempts have begun to dwindle a bit, but the Bolts have enough playmakers around him to prop up his assist totals even if his shooting percentage takes a dive at some point. The 24-year-old has 64 points in 65 games, giving him a top-10 spot on the NHL's scoring list.

Bolts' Johnson Pots Goal In Loss

News: Tyler Johnson potted his 24th goal in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers.
Analysis: That's five points in the last three games now for Tyler Johnson, and five goals in his last eight. The 24-year-old's 61 points were already a career high, but his 24th goal matches his tally from last season. He's just off the pace of a point per game, so keep him rolling.

Bolts' Johnson: Three-Point Night

News: Tyler Johnson scored a goal and added two assists in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: It's his first multi-point game in nine outings, but he still has 10 points -- including six goals -- in his last 10 games. And he's just one goal shy of matching his career mark of 24 goals. Use him well.

Bolts' Johnson Gets Two Goals

News: Tyler Johnson scored two goals in Thursday's 5-3 win over Dallas -- a power-play marker and the game-winner at even strength.
Analysis: With that, Tyler Johnson has established a new career mark in points (51), and he's done it in just 51 games. There's no sophomore slump here, that's for sure. Use with confidence.

Bolts' Johnson Looks Ready To Play Tuesday

News: Tyler Johnson (lower body) was on the ice for pregame warmups and looks like he'll be cleared to play Tuesday against the Hurricanes, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Lightning didn't have an extra forward take part in warmups as insurance in the event of a setback for Tyler Johnson, so consider him good to go for Tuesday's tilt. Johnson was forced to miss out of his first career All-Star appearance due to the untimely injury, but it shouldn't deter fantasy owners from slotting him back into their lineups. With 48 points in 46 games, Johnson checks in ahead of more-heralded teammate Steven Stamkos (45 points) as the Bolts' leading scorer.

Bolts' Johnson Still Game-Time Call

News: Tyler Johnson (lower body) is still being regarded as a game-time decision ahead of Tuesday's match against the Hurricanes, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: After coach Jon Cooper labeled him as a game-time call following his participation in practice Monday, Tyler Johnson's status didn't change despite his presence at Tuesday's morning skate. His involvement in both regular line work and power-play duties bode well for Johnson's chances of playing Tuesday, but fantasy owners will want confirmation on his status during warmups before determining whether to keep him active.

Bolts' Johnson A Game-Time Call Tuesday

News: Tyler Johnson (lower body) will be a game-time call for Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Tyler Johnson's injury was revealed prior to the All-Star break, preventing him from participating in the festivities. He did practice with the team Monday, which could indicate there's a decent chance he plays, but the team should provide a more concrete status prior to the opening faceoff Tuesday.

Lightning's Johnson A Practice Participant

News: Tyler Johnson (lower body) was on the ice for Monday's practice, NHL.com's Bryan Burns reports.
Analysis: Per the report, Tyler Johnson didn't appear to be slowed by the lower-body injury that kept him out of the NHL All-Star Game, which bodes well for the forward's chances of suiting up Tuesday against the Hurricanes.

Tampa Bay's Johnson Out For All-Star Game

News: Tyler Johnson (lower body) will not play in Sunday's All-Star Game, but he will be eligible to play in Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes if healthy, ESPN reports. He is at the All-Star festivities even though he isn't going to play.
Analysis: Tyler Johnson appears to be sitting out as a precaution more than anything. He played in the last three games leading up to the All-Star break, so there's little reason to think he won't be ready to go for Tuesday's game.

Bolts' Johnson: Two Points In Return From Injury

News: Tyler Johnson (lower body) returned to action Thursday in a win over the Oilers. He was reunited with linemates Nikita Kucherov and Ondrej Palat, and set up two goals, including the winner.
Analysis: Holy smokes -- there's no holding this guy down. He missed just a single game and was in red non-contact jersey at Thursday morning's skate. Yet he was out there against the Oil like there was nothing wrong. Get him back in your lineup immediately. He merely has 11 points in his last seven games.

Bolts' Johnson (Lower Body) Appears Set To Play

News: Tyler Johnson (lower body) is taking part in line rushes during warmups and appears set to play Thursday against the Oilers, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: He assumed his typical spot on the second line, with Ondrej Palat and Nikita Kucherov flanking him. It seems any concerns about the lower-body injury Tyler Johnson was nursing have subsided, making it worthwhile for his fantasy owners to keep him active Thursday. The center is in the midst of a breakout season, tallying 17 goals and 29 assists over his 43 games thus far.
